Introducing Gertie!

The pregnant box. I had to wait for an hour and a half in the delivery room (aka UPS pickup) waiting for the driver to return.

The birthing. You can see the little Pentax logo peaking out.

The birth.

The cleaned up blanketed photo. Cute little button lens and bright digital eyes.

I named her "Gertie" and here are her stats (from Amazon where I got her):

Featuring PENTAX Auto Picture modes and powerful learning functions, such as a dedicated help button, the K2000 is one of the smallest, lightest camera bodies in its class. Additional features include a 10.2 megapixel CCD, a 2.7 inch, 230,000 dot-high resolution, wide view LCD panel, and an ultra compact design that facilitates one handed operation. The body also features the PENTAX developed Shake Reduction and Dust Reduction.

The Pentax SMC DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 is recommended for use with digital SLR cameras. Ideal for beginners, it provides a focal length covering a wide to moderate wide-angle range. Like all Pentax lenses, this lens is treated with Pentax's acclaimed SMC coating for maximum light transmission, sharp definition, and high contrast while minimizing flare and ghost imaging.

The Pentax AF200FG hot-shoe mount flash features a compact, lightweight body, a guide number of 20 (at ISO 100/m) and simple dial operation to assure effortless flash photography for everyone. The P-TTL auto flash system assures proper exposure level by measuring the flash's pre-discharge with the camera's multi-pattern metering system. The AF200FG uniformly covers the wide discharge angle of a 28mm lens (in the 35mm format) and includes a flip-down diffuser.

Here is her first photo:
More to come as I take her on outings and out for walks. So anytime I mention Gertie, you know what I am talking about.
